      This dish was a great accompaniment to pork. As other reviewers suggested, I cut back significantly on the brown sugar. It was still quite sweet, partly because I used sweetened dried cranberries since they were on hand. It was very easy to throw together, and leftovers were good, too! Thanks.

      I thought this was very good. There was a lot of liquid in the crockpot when the potatoes were ready to be mashed and they were really soupy. I ended up leaving the lid off for a while to try and thicken them, so next time I might drain them before mashing. I only used 2 T of brown sugar and they were quite sweet. My kids picked out the cranberries but liked it otherwise.
